The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    I hate bashing federations, but I am not a fan of the APA. I have done a few and only one was a good experience. My top 3 federations are APF, USPA and R.A.W United. Brian Schwab and OBB always put on a good meet, but his meets are getting way too big for only one day. He needs to start having them over a two day span. I saw where he was going to cap it off at 60.? But he said there is over 80 lifters! That's going to be a LONG day! Be glad your not doing it

    I will probably try USPA next year, too. Have heard some good things about them, and they hold most meets at a convenient location.

    I thought Brian did cap it at sixty. Guess there were twenty still in the mail when he made the announcement. After his twelve hour meet last October, he talked about going to two platforms this time.

    I would highly suggest doing a USPA meet. I plan on doing at least one next year, maybe 2.

    Q
    those you that normally let the bardrop but keep your hands in contact, doesn't all that bar rattling reverberate up your arm and thru your joints wreak havoc?

    I always lower my bar under control whatever the weight, i figure the neg lift is doing some good as well.

    Its a controlled drop, and when doing it i'll loosen my grip right before the floor... just enough so the jarring doesn't happen, and so it looks like your hands are still on the bar.

    The negative aspect IS good... in training. When you're competing, and still have two more pulls left you absolutely do NOT need to be 'training' at this point. Negative your third deadlift if you feel the need to train more or show off... heh heh...
